Client Testimonials

"Being a sales focused organization, it was time that we practiced what we preached when it came to our sales recruiting department.  Kristy was brought on to help us become more metrics-driven when it came to our recruiting practices.  Not only did she reshape us in that area, but she helped us streamline our recruiting processes, enhance our branding to prospective sales candidates, and realign our vendors to connect with highly effective providers to do more with less.  Kristy’s ability to think high level, but also roll up her sleeves and help implement the plan was invaluable to us.  She was a cultural fit and was a huge help to our business."

"Content-rich, compelling, clear, and concise are the words I would use to describe the recent Interviewing Workshops Kristy provided for our YWCA Metropolitan Chicago Hiring Managers. Her down-to-earth style, along with her depth of knowledge relative to not only "Best Practices" interviewing processes, but also insightful how-to's for conducting quality interviews, created a rich learning experience for workshop participants. Their feedback indicated they experienced significant increases in their interviewing knowledge, learned more than they thought they would, appreciated leaving the training with a plan and worksheet, found the sample questions to be extremely helpful, and really appreciated the balance between process versus flexibility -- that you can have a process for interviewing without it being rigid. Workshop content and delivery were both exceptional. Highly recommend Kristy for anyone seeking to increase their organization's interviewing competencies relative to post-to-hire recruiting efficiency as well as the ability to identify and hire the most qualified candidates."
